"Let's pray that they don't tear" – straight from the horse's mouth as talk show queen Kelly Ripa made her way onto the "Live!" set today. The 49-year-old had both her killer figure and her trademark sense of humor on show this Wednesday, with the "Live!" Instagram account clearly selecting the best pre-show moment to share with fans.

Kelly, who this year drove Instagram wild while covered in bread loaves and with no pants, today very much wore them. But with Kelly admitting she could barely get them on, was she really wearing the trousers, or were they wearing her? Check it out below.

So Tight, She Could Barely Get Them On

Scroll for the video. If you don't follow the "Live!" account, the feed every day shows the former "All My Children" actress and 45-year-old co-host Ryan Seacrest making their way onto the stage. It's been big news this month as the two finally resumed filming in the studio after months of socially-distanced video streaming.

The video kicked off with Kelly walking through a hallway and after Ryan. The mom of three, super-stylish as ever, was rocking a frilly, loose, and silky blouse in bold red and black, with black pants coordinating for a tight finish with high heels.

Can't Get Her Hands Out Her Pockets

Keep scrolling for the video. Kicking off from the front, it eventually showed Kelly saying: "Getting them on...." she didn't finish the sentence, but continued: "Let's pray that they don't tear" then making her way past the camera and getting filmed from behind.

Kelly, placing her hands in her back pockets, then said her hands were "stuck" in her pockets. Kelly said she'd get her hands out but "I can't."

A caption merely reading "We're live!!" didn't mention the tight pants, but the fans have noticed. Check out the comments after the video.

'Omg When She Snapped Her Skims'

One fan was seemingly referencing an on-set and live moment, and it did appear that Ripa may have gotten into a sticky situation.

"Omg when she snapped her Skims I felt it over here 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂❤️❤️😂❤️❤️I love Kelly!" the user wrote.

It's worth noting that both Kelly and Ryan have been getting slammed recently for walking through the backstage area without face masks. This was the case just earlier this week. Less-so today.

"Watching Kelly with hands in pockets as she walks is like they make inmates walk the halls in jail, lol," one fan replied.

Back On Set After 180 Days Apart

Kelly and Ryan made headlines on September 9 for ending a 180-day period seeing them both delivering the show from their quarantines. The two marked their return to the "Live!" studio with a bang and a giant COVID shout-out. They posed in twinning full hazmat suits and gas masks, plus protective latex gloves.

Interestingly, back in July, Kelly joked that she wouldn't return to the set if she had to wear pants. "I think we should build a studio that you can't see what we're wearing from the waist down," she kidded.
